Research and Recording Activities
Our research and recorders are drawn from varied backgrounds and have different skills but all have an interest in Cheshire's historic parks and gardens and enjoy sharing their discoveries with others. We meet as a group on a regular basis - at Arley Hall, on a site or over a pub lunch.
Research and recorders operate independently or in pairs and at their own pace, putting in as much (or as little) time as life allows. Volunteers decide what they would like to investigate and the together group agrees priorities and programme.
The amount of information available varies enormously; the internet can prove a rich source of information and there can be unexpectedly delightful finds in local libraries and archives such as beautifully drawn estates maps or detailed account books. Owners are often willing to share their records with us too.
We are pleased to welcome new people, arrange induction sessions for new volunteers, and are always happy to receive comments and ideas.
